You guys looking for a weekend to take the wife should consider this place. Simmsboro La. its called Creekwood Estates. Private cabins, large gardens with greenhouse, couple ponds to fish in. Very relaxing place

Well been a while. Had to take a break and take care of business and visit family. Did go fish with Doug and ran the boat. We are in Mexico now for at least 2 weeks.

Didnt catch anything big. Lots of small dorado and bonita but i knew wrong time of year going out. Plan on swimming with whale sharks and a few other things. I may go fish with a commercial guy hand lining bottom fish later next week.

Good thing was once we kinda knew what we were catching I asked if we could put the 30s up and match the tackle with fish. It was fun. Ran a couple 20s and two egg beaters. Ate fresh ceviche and learned some things rigging ill use later

Slept in today. Rough morning. Soggy Peso kinda hurt this morning. Just hung at beach mostly and got massages at a spa. Headed to go eat street foods this evening so we will see what the future holds

How did I miss this thread until just now. Just got caught up on all your traveling. Good to see you enjoying retirement! We are heading to Isla Mujeres next month. August fishing us probably the worst time to be there. I guess we will be doing bottom fishing or inshore. We are planning on swimming with the whale sharks and scuba diving mostly.

Got up early and went on a boat day- Ran about 20 miles and swam with whale sharks and manta rays- About 3-4 hours of that we went and looked at some awesome shorleline on a protected island then to a reef to snorkel and eat shrimp ceviche- if you come down donít ho on the tours. Find a local to take you- Ive had the same guy twice- First day fishing from 730a- 430. Today 7a to about 315. It was a total of $1300 plus tips for two days.

Jr- I just ask around when I get someplace. The guy Im going with I met through a friend. When you get to an island just ask the first person you get along with well. Bartender- waitress- person selling fruit at market etc. Tell them what you are looking for- Either that or take a cab to the docks one morning or evening and ask around. Most of these guys take out tours booked through tourist companies. They would much rather take a family or small group and cut out the middle man.
